A Model for Crime Analysis and Real Time Crime Centers

The primary purpose of crime analysis is to support (i.e., assist) the operations of a police department in ongoing operational and crime-reduction efforts. These functions include criminal investigation, apprehension, and prosecution; patrol activities; crime-prevention and reduction strategies; problem solving; and the evaluation and accountability of police efforts. Through access to criminal and noncriminal data and accompanying software, crime analysis is performed to address short-term situations (e.g., several days to several weeks long) and problems occurring over a longer period of time (e.g., several months to several years).
